Burlington and Hamilton Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

Does any neck pain sufferer want to get an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Nope! New studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors - may help such Burlington and Hamilton neck pain patients avoid treatment escalation to imaging/injections/surgery.  Spinal Care Clinic is ready to help with that!

EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN

Neck pain alongside Burlington and Hamilton back pain are primary causes of disability around the world and here in Burlington and Hamilton. Chiropractic is being related as a safe, helpful option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few such patients. Chiropractic is described as care focused on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions with spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation is described as inhibiting back and neck pain partly by spine related mechanisms and possibly via peripheral mechanisms that regulate inflammatory pain responses. More research is called upon to determine just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1) We use spinal manipulation daily at Spinal Care Clinic.

SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION

Spinal manipulation for neck pain is shown to reduce the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain patients wanting relief find that their treatment is heightened to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such risk was 2.38 times greater in those who got care other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation decreased the risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors in the United States. (2) Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor uses specialized, research-based, safe, and gentle spinal manipulation for neck pain relief.

SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF

As an example of how a specific form of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic flexion distraction, helps relieve pain, a case report of a patient with neurofibromatosis who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually applied cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation along with myofascial release, patient education about modifying her workplace ergonomics, and at-home care reduced her neck and thoracic spine pain as well as headache frequency. (3) Spinal Care Clinic works one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools and understanding to attain such relief.

PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING

Showing chronic nonspecific Burlington and Hamilton neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand their neck pain enriches their outcomes. A study comparing therapeutic exercise alone to therapeutic exercise plus pain neuroscience education to help them understand their condition found that the combination was more impactful. The combination decreased the patients’ pain-disability scores, pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That’s the goal of care for us at Spinal Care Clinic: less pain.
